You do realize the protests are against "White" people.

Hence my comment.


And yes, I'm very triggered.

I first saw news of this in a USA Today article where, to paraphrase, they pointed out that Norvell is white and replaced an African American Willie Taggart as if this had any bearing on the story at hand. It seems that the media are the ones pushing the race angle with statements like this.

Also that Odell Haggins didn't get the HC job, which he is the DL coach, and Marvin Wilson is a defensive lineman.

It's obvious that the biggest race baiters out there are "journalists", but your initial statement wasn't wrong. The fact that he's white makes this a much bigger story than had Taggart done the same thing if he were still there. On a separate note, I have no ill will toward Norvell for taking a bigger job and feel like he took Memphis to the next level, but it seems like he's about to find our really quickly that the grass isn't necessarily greener on the other side.

I don't think the issue was the text itself. It was the fact that he told a reporter he had "individual conversations with every player" over the weekend.

That’s not what he actually said though. On a side note, we are obviously desperate to find something sports related to discuss, lol.

The reporter listed the actual quote from Norvell but changed it in his tweet.



Norvell's quote:
We had a lot of open communication with our team, our players and our coaches. I went back and forth individually with every player this weekend.

Reporters interpretation:
Quote:had individual conversations with every player on his roster this past weekend focused on the events of George Floyd.

Changed ever so slightly by the reporter. If Norvell leaves out the back and forth he's fine.

Common technique employed by reporters. Caulking immediately comes to mind.

I think Norvell did the right thing for financial future.

He was a sliver away from not winning the conference this year...(Tulsa Missing a FG)

8-6 in 2018

10-3 in 2017 but a bunch of squeakers that year as well.

8-5 in 2016

Lets not kid ourselves if he fell off a cliff in 2021 and 2022 people would be starting to get restless with Norvell...Even in Memphis.

He would have been 11-2 with a bowl win against a lesser opponent; he would have been perfectly fine.

You keep endlessly bringing up squeaker nonsense.

Cincinnati
3 UCF
3 ECU
3 USF
2 Temple

Navy
3 Tulane
7 SMU

UCF
3 Tulane
3 Losses by 7 points total

Oklahoma
7 Texas
7 Kansas State
1 Iowa State
3 Baylor
4 TCU

LSU
7 Texas
3 Auburn
5 Alabama

Georgia
7 Notre Dame
6 Florida
6 Texas A&M

Memphis
5 Ole Piss
1 Tulsa
6 SMU

Every team wins close games and gets lucky. You seem confused about the entire concept of what differentiates good teams from great teams. You think Oklahoma was 8-5.

Oooops...

I meant aren't...But at least we know where you stand.

The protests are not against white people.

The police in the main case were 2 white, 1 black and 1 asian.

In the Atlanta deal I think most of the cops fired and charged where black.

If it was a black cop who knelt on the guys neck and killed him it would be the similar outrage.

And that is the world you live in...

Black cops were fired and charged with police brutality for pulling the kids out of the car in Atlanta.

Even after the white cop was charged they wanted the other 3 cops charged as well... 1 black, 1 asian and 1 white (The 2nd white guy shouldn't have been charged in my opinion but they pushed the easy button).

This isn't a black vs. white situation...Not that simple.

Black folk just want to be treated the same by the police...That doesn't happen.

There were twice as many unarmed white men killed by cops last year than unarmed black men.



Name one of them.

How many more white people are there in the country than black people?

The get back to me on how equivalent it is.

And black folks are policed more aggressively than white people.

Lets look at the war on drugs...

Crack...Black drug...Lock their criminal asses up (As long as possible)...Cocaine (White drug) same base drug much lesser penalty.

Now you have the prescription drug epidemic that has hit the suburbs as hard as the inner cities...But now we are much more sympathetic to the people with addictions...Now these people have a disease and need help...No longer criminals. I wonder why that is.

Around 5-6 times as many white folk as black folk.

And just so there's no misunderstanding, I agree. ALL people should be treated equally. I am completely against racism in any form. Black folk should not have to fear police. Do you know who statistically kills way more black folk than any cop of any race? Other black folks. Them's the facts, easy to look up.

Dude I have a black daughter-in-law. She's a fine young lady and I don't really give a damn about race. But I will not bow and scrape because I'm white.

Again with posting those darned misleading statistics.

Crimes are usually committed by people living in close proximity to each other...

Unfortunately our neighborhoods are not integrated like they should be so black folks live near black folks...Hence black folks are killed by black folks...Just like white folks are killed by white folks and latino folks are killed by latino folks.

And who asked you to bow and scrape because you are white. Comments like that are what you read in many of the recruiting pamphlets.

Honest question,

What does "not integrated like they should be" even mean?

On the surface it sounds ridiculous.

I don't think the many of police treating black people different are racist...

Not even close.

But I do think they need training so that they don't target a group of people because statistically they commit more crime based on percentage.
